Our friends in Public Safety and the Academic Technology Services (ATS) office got the chance to showcase their new digs late last month, hosting simultaneous open houses that brought folks from across campus to the Instructional Services Building. The ATS remodel provided a new look for the former Media Resources service area, highlighting a variety of cutting-edge learning technology tools. For Public Safety, the event was another chance to position its headquarters as a location well known to all students, faculty and staff, as well as prospective students and their families. Plus, there was cake. See photos of the day.
